Yaron Haviv, CTO and co-founder of Iguazio joins TC Currie for this episode of The New Stack Makers. Haviv’s deep technological experience in the fields of big data, cloud, storage and networking led to him leading the team creating Iguazio’s new product nuclio.
This open-source project, launched in December 2017, is an extremely fast serverless platform with a real-time processing engine. Extremely fast meaning 100x faster than AWS Lambda. “Everyone knows that the value of data diminishes over time,” said Haviv, “so that means when the data starts flowing into the system, you need to start aggregating contextualizing and acting on it as it flows.”
The question was how to process data at extreme speed and at scale, moving from the notion that data is something that you store and query to thinking of data as something you continuously process.
